Movie Review: In ‘Freeheld,’ a dying detective fights for Gay Rights

By Manhola Dargis

“Freeheld,” a television movie of the week gone uninterestingly wrong, stars Julianne Moore as a real New Jersey detective turned gay rights activist. In better hands this might have made a heart-rending, personal story, but “Freeheld” is as generic as the bullet points in a gay rights brochure, even when Steve Carell roars in as an activist, leading with his lungs and a purple yarmulke.

"Freeheld” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). There’s some adult language and gunplay.
